December 2021 Newsletter

Written by Webmaster on . Posted in Uncategorized

Greetings to all outdoorsmen and women!

  This coming year, 2022, marks the 25th anniversary of the Sioux County Sportsmen’s Club.

  This year’s kids’ events were a great success. Be sure to encourage youth to attend these events, especially those who have not been introduced to the outdoors before!                                                                      

  • At the Outdoor Skills Day this year there were 162 kids attending. It is awesome to see so many kids interested in wanting to learn different skills for the outdoors.
  • Kids Fishing Day was a great day filled with lots of excitement and smiles.
  •  Thanks to the Sioux County Conservation Board and all the volunteers for putting on these events.

Land Update

   We are currently working on several land purchases. We are very close on one large purchase. Hopefully we can make an announcement at the Banquet.


2021 started out with much uncertainty we didn’t know if we would be able to have a banquet and had already had to cancel our Fall fundraiser in 2020. The Sioux County Sportsmen’s Club is certainly blessed with some very supportive members because as of today our fundraising for the year is at around $92,000, which I believe is a record year. The Banquet was late which brought attendance down, but the spending was not down. We did two 5-gun raffles as separate fundraisers, the second of which we will be drawing in the next 30 days. We plan to do a gun raffle again in 2022. Thanks to all who helped support the club this year. We hope to purchase some new land for all to enjoy very soon!


 Start making plans to attend the 25th anniversary banquet held again at the Dordt College Rec Center on March 5, 2022. Many new things are being planned for this years banquet including some awesome guns for prizes. Invite your family, friends, co-workers, and date. Everyone is welcome. The board has been very busy planning for this event. Help us make this major fundraising event a huge success.
